For a university that has its roots in technology, Curtin University has unexpected strengths in the humanities and especially in Creative Writing. Two Curtin professors, Kim Scott and Elizabeth Jolley, and Curtin alumnus Tim Winton have been honored seven times with the Miles Franklin award, Australia’s most prestigious literary prize. The program has produced numerous other authors and journalists. The Center for Aboriginal Studies, a leader in its field, is another unique program offered by Curtin University. While science and engineering remain a strong focus, the university, which is based in Perth, Australia, also offers learning pathways and distance education programs in business and health sciences.
